Seriously. Pelicans are just weird.
On my morning walks by the Columbia River, I’ve recently been seeing giant pelicans (specifically, these are American White Pelicans with close to a ten foot wingspan!). It’s so cool to see them in flight – though I’m not equipped to get a nice photo of that. But I also spotted one in the water; the quality isn’t great because I’m far away and using my phone, but that silhouette is unmistakable!
